Welcome to High Beech School

Announcements: 

We are really pleased to announce that as from 1st January 2019, we are officially members of The Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust.

This Multi Academy Trust is made up of 15 local infant, junior and primary schools and we are really looking forward to working collaboratively with these schools.

Dear Parents/Carers,

High Beech is a unique learning community committed to providing a Christian based education for all its pupils. This is a school where children develop caring, confident and tolerant attitudes. It has a strong network of staff, parents, governors and children who work together to make the school a happy and vibrant place.

Our vision is to provide a high quality education where children are able to realise their full potential and to secure their future as life-long learners. The beautiful forest setting offers an exceptional hands-on educational experience using the outdoor environment as a classroom to develop confidence and self-esteem.

If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me by phoning the school office.

Kind regards

 

Sarah Roffey

Headteacher, High Beech Church of England VC Primary School

Sims Agora Online Payment

High Beech Primary School uses an  online payments system , which we would encourage you to use to pay for school meals, breakfast club and other school activities.  We hope that you will find paying in this way is much more convenient and from our perspective it will save us time as well as reduce the chances of money being lost or stolen.

We use a  system known as ‘SIMS Agora’ which is very easy-to-use and will offer you the flexibility to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that payments are secure and use the highest level of card security and that funds will reach the school safely.

Easy fundraising online shopping
